Wings' Blashill named coach of US men's team

Detroit Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill meets with reporters Tuesday, April 11, 2017, in Detroit.

The world championships are May 5-21 in Paris, France and Cologne, Germany. "What I know is every single year we put lots of pressure on ourselves to make sure that we're one of those 16 teams competing for the Stanley Cup".

After missing the playoffs for the first time in 26 seasons, the Detroit Red Wings aren't embarking on a total shakeup.

"If those (young players) have a bad game or a bad shift or stretch of bad games or a stretch of bad shifts, that's where the coach decides that he's going to take ice time away or maybe sit them for a game as a message that they need to dig in harder", Holland explained. He has previously been involved with U.S. teams in global competition as goatlending coach for the 2009 U.S. National Junior Team at the IIHF World Junior Championship and as assistant coach for both the U.S. Junior Select Team at the 2009 World Junior A Challenge and the U.S. National Under-18 Select Team at the 2006 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament.

He led the Indiana Ice to the USHL championship in his first season.

The Sault Ste. Marie native and Ferris State Bulldog is being heavily scrutinized this spring after a season to forget behind the bench in Detroit.

"This year was very disappointing, unacceptable", Holland said.

Many former players, like Kocur, and coaches were on hand to say goodbye to the team's home since 1979.

Blashill, who guided Detroit's AHL farm team in Grand Rapids to the Calder Cup title in 2013, hopes the experience will help him grow as a coach. Blashill, who was hired in 2015 after Mike Babcock's departure, made the playoffs in his first season, but Detroit went 33-36-13 in 2016-17. "He's under contract in Tampa I think until 2019". Other members include Stan Bowman (Chicago Blackhawks), Dean Lombardi (USA Hockey), David Poile (Nashville Predators), Ray Shero (New Jersey Devils), Dale Tallon (Florida Panthers) and Don Waddell (Carolina Hurricanes). Part of the improvement of the team has to be done internally. The World Championships is smack dab in the middle of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, so numerous best players aren't available. USA Hockey's worldwide council, chaired by Gavin Regan (Potsdam, N.Y.), has oversight responsibilities for all US national teams. We missed the playoffs. The video was shot by Wings fan Trevor Black who was in attendance at the game, which the Red Wings won 4-1.
